Subject: Free Listens review
Jan Rubak speaks clearly and distinctly. In fact, this is sometimes too much of a good thing as his over-enunciation may annoy some people, while others might find it helpful. Other than the distinct consonants, there's really nothing to complain about in this reading.

Subject: Fantastic Collection
A superb collection expertly read.

I've recommended it to many people, and even downloaded it and given the mp3 files to people on disc to increase the chance that they'll listen.

Subject: Amazing
I haven't quite finished listening to this book yet but i must say i'm both incredibly impressed by the "content" of this book and the performance of the "content" of this book. It's well thought out and equally well read. A true delight.
